Medical Legacy - Poem by santhana louis


She is a very renowned
doctor in general medicine
handles daily roughly 35 patients
morning 9 to late night 10
except, quick lunch breaks in-between.

I suppose, she is married
has a family and children
must have living parents, some
near and dear to be taken care of.

such a routine of tight professional bout
will surely deprive her of other social charms
yet, she seems to be happy with growing wealth
additional floors, every year, in her nursing home.

and she has a novel practice of going on picnic
with family to Thailand, Singapore or Hong Kong
for a fortnight - as to show- case her love and concern
to otherwise deserted, and uncared children.

Later, the children grew up in the same medical serfdom
took charge of the legacy /family industry with ease & comfort
one step ahead - as a closely held, private limited company
with new logo, tie-ups, uniformed staff, ISO certification

…….with the primary motive remaining the same
another batch of little children playing at home
